Guitarist & Singer, Zack Bramhall, was born into the Blues in Dallas, Texas. He’s the nephew of Doyle Bramhall; who’s famous for his collaborations with Stevie Ray Vaughan & Jimmy Vaughan, and, is first cousin to Doyle Bramhall II of Arch Angels, as well as being known for working with Eric Clapton and other notable blues artists over the years. Zack’s music is in the deep groove vein of Jimmy Reed, Howlin’ Wolf & John Lee Hooker. As he borrows heavily from these Blues Masters, Zack brings a completely fresh, Heart-felt Intensity Loyal to Texas Blues! Although Zack Bramhall has performed thousands of shows throughout the South & Midwest – along with stops in New York & Chicago, he is still a secret to many.
